Milwaukee clinic opens 2 COVID-19 testing sites for uninsured, those without primary care
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee Health Services, Inc. has begun offering COVID-19 testing at their two locations in Milwaukee for members of the community who are uninsured or do not have a primary care physician.
Sixth District Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs is pleased to see more testing options being offered to residents of her district and other underserved areas of the city.
"I applaud Milwaukee Health Services, Inc. for stepping up and offering testing and other support services to those who don't have insurance or a regular doctor," Alderwoman Coggs said. "There are many factors that can lead to someone choosing to not get tested or seek medical support, and having resources like this are crucial to making sure everyone gets the care they need."
Testing will be offered at the MLK Heritage Health Center, 2555 N. Dr. Martin L. King Jr. Drive, and at the Isaac Coggs Heritage Health Center, 8200 W. Silver Spring Drive.
Testing is by appointment only, and residents wanting to ask questions or schedule a visit should call 414-372-8080.
Symptoms of COVID-19 can include cough, shortness of breath and fever of 100.4 or greater.
